just visiting ... in town for all- star weekend. it was available for viewing this afternoon at the san jose mcenery convention center. since their inception in 19- 91... the sharks have never won the cup. so, for die hard fans... this was a rare chance to get up close and personal . in fact.... fans waited for hours in line to see it. but they were split on whether or not they should √°touch√° it.

sports world tonight...(ken) mark carpenter joins us in the studio. each year, we're thinking just maybe it finally happens. but that's not the case. another year passes and barry bonds...does not get a call for the baseball hall of fame. for the 7th time, the giants great and some would say one of the best to ever play, denied a chance at the hall... landing on 59-percent of the ballots, a three percent jump from last year, but still 75-percent is needed to get in. of course this shows that writers are still hesitant to give the green light due to his history with performance enhancing drugs... there are only three chances left for the 7-time-mvp to get in. another player linked to ped's... roger clemens... also fell well short with 59- .5-percent of the vote as far as the other inductees are concerned, congratulations to legendary yankees closer mariano rivera... the sandman is the first player ever to be elected unanimously, getting votes from all 425-voting
6:35 pm
members. also making the class... two time cy young winner, the late roy halladay. the great mariner dh edgar martinez... and former oriole and yankee ace mike mussina now let's talk about some future hall of famers-- another warriors game means another chance for records to be set. what an outing from klay thompson last night against the lakers... just firing out of the gates... in only three quarters of work dropped 44-points... and started 10-of-10 from downtown, tying an nba record. he did all of this with only 3-dribbles... just a couple weeks ago he scored 43 with 4-dribbles thompson on his latest record performance. "never hit 10 threes in a row in a game. that was hard. i mean that's hard to do. i tohught i had 11 for a second, but that's basketball.""it was one of those nights. he's just been in a good groove lately and he got it going. his teammates were looking for him. we had 41 assists tonight. te ball was moving, and klay was just spectacular.
6:36 pm
another sidebar from last night is a rare mistake from steph curry. the team and fans left cringing at this play... late in the 3rd quarter, the mvp...all by himself on a fastbreak, looks like he's going for a dunk, but ends up slipping. just a miserable attempt. thankfully he was okay and walked away from the scene uninjured. "you think steph was lining up for a monster dunk? (laughter) have you seen steph's dunks? i thought it was going to be one of those layupos where he just pulls the rim down a little bit to make it seem like... he's done a lot of those over the years." "that will definitely be on "shaqtin' a fool", so now that he's alright, healthy, definitely give him a hard time. that was funny." finally tonight, more than 48 hours removed from the nfc title game, saints fans still can't get over what happened with that pass interference call against the rams. we all saw the play... 4th quarter...under two minutesss. a blatant p-i c one that would have given new orleans a first and goal. saints end up losing..
6:37 pm
and now some fans are expressing their frustration in a variety of ways, billboards around the city and in atlanta-- the site of the super bowl. also, a few have filed also, a few have filed lawsuits against the nfl...trying to get the game replayed, and the suits have cited the non-call has brought emotional distress and mental anguish. highly unlikely this gets overturned. coming up ... the sight of the wreckage alone would take your breath away... but good what to do, when they could not find a pulse on one of the northern california victims.
